The Hockey5s PAC is a continental qualifier for the inaugural International Hockey Federation (FIH) Hockey5s World Cup, set to be played in January 2024. The U.S. Men’s and Women’s Hockey5s Teams will both be participating in this qualifier in hopes of clinching a spot and becoming a part of history in this first-ever Hockey5s World Cup.
